Nomura explains distinction between "0.5" and "0.2" in Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A Fragmentary Passage-

In an interview with Famitsu Weekly, Tetsuya Nomura, director of the Kingdom Hearts series, was asked questions concerning the HD collection announced for PlayStation 4, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue. One topic in particular was brought up about Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A Fragmentary Passage-. In the discussion, Nomura explains the distinction between "0.5" and "0.2". "0.5" was supposed to be a whole new volume, as hinted at in the Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep: Final Mix ending of the secret episode. The reason why "0.5" was bumped down to "0.2" was because Kingdom Hearts III is still a priority and did not want to affect development for it, however Nomura wanted to give fans a taste of Kingdom Hearts III with it's new technology, which is used for Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A Fragmentary Passage-.

You can read the quote below from the Famitsu Weekly interview thanks to KH13 News Team member soraspromise.

I see! Having to shake the time axis of the series to make new additions. The 0.2 in “KH0.2 BBS” especially had to have a deliberate significance.
Nomura: In the secret episode of “KH BBS Final Mix”, there was a display of “0.5”. “0.5” was originally intended to be a full volume as a sequel to “KH BBS”. But because “KHIII” is still the top priority, “0.1” took one step forward to “0.2”.


Totally forgot 0.5. Haha. 

Edit: Wait, where did we saw 0.5?

but I guess nomura was busy working on something else at that time,Nya?

Because they had to move the story forward at some point, and decided sooner rather than later.

Am I Blind? Where is the 0.5 hahah.

You're not. It isn't there. 

Am I Blind? Where is the 0.5 hahah.

0.5 is "-Volume Two-", which is what Nomura was stating, that 0.5 was supposed to be an entire volume but was downed to 0.2 due to KH3 being a priority.

I'm just grateful that this isn't diminishing work on Kingdom Hearts III, since we've been waiting for the game for so long!  I'm really happy to know that Nomura will have the opportunity to tell the story of A Fragmentary Passage without sacrificing Kingdom Hearts III's development!

 

Hype for 2.8!!!  Hype, hype, hype!!! :D

This does make me wonder when the rest of the volume will be told and what the rest of the volume could entail.
